About the Course

A look at the structure and consequences of a single-payer system so you can better understand what is out there and how to educate your clients.  

Members of Congress are discussing whether a single-payer system, such as in Canada and other countries, would be the way to achieve universal coverage in the United States. Some of the proposals being considered may look similar to systems we have today, but are still single-payer systems or a pathway to single payer. Would you recognize a single-payer system? These systems exist all over the world and we can learn from those that are already in existence. This issue is not only an issue of political contention, but one that is being broadly discussed on an ongoing basis.   
  
It is critical for health insurance professionals to understand what a single-payer system would mean for their families, clients and country. This three-hour course provides in-depth instruction from Dave Mordo on the importance of the overall functioning of healthcare delivery and financing in the United States, the structure of single-payer systems in other countries, and detailed information on legislation that has been introduced in Congress or proposed by political candidates. It also includes important references for supplemental reading, continuing education credits and a final exam.
